    Dec 30, 2014 | RiderMagazine.com

    Here was a slightly new approach to the widening dual-purpose market, an electric-start 650 single with a bikini fairing, a couple of plastic body panels on the tank, a couple more to cover up most of the two mufflers, and a 21-inch front wheel with a close-fitting fender. This was a perfect round-town bike with some minor pretensions at dirt-roading, though the low fender meant one did not want to venture into sticky mud.

The first three bikes to receive the new "water boxer" opposed flat twin-R 1200 GS, GSA and R 1200 RT-all kept their functional Telelever front suspension, which uses a trailing link pivoting on the frame and a spring strut to relieve the telescopic fork of suspension duties, leaving it to just steer the bike.
